united states senate. >> e.j., we just got a piece of an videotape in, an interview he did with nbc's ron allen. i want to play it for you and get your reaction afterwards. here it is. >> one thing you seem to have trouble convincing people of, you are the person that cares about middle class people, people are struggling. they don't see in your background and your comments the kind of empathy and understanding that could really solve their problems. >> i think people had the chance who watched our republican convention to see the lives i've had a chance to touch during my life. to understand that i served as a pastor of a congregation with people of all different backgrounds and economic circumstances. that i care very deeply about the american people and people of different socioeconomic circumstances. and i think throughout this campaign as well, we've talked about my record in massachusetts. don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured. 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance. i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy. >> "shows more empathy"? e

putting these people back to work and so has the president of the united states. when president obama tried to sell his jobs bill last year over the refusal of the republican congress, he talked about the kinds of people who would get those kinds of jobs. >> it's a bill that would put people back to work, rebuilding america. repairing our roads, repairing our bridges, repairing our schools. it would lead to jobs for concrete workers like the ones here at hilltop, jobs for construction workers and masons, carp carpenters, electricians, engineers, ironworkers. put folks back to work. >> mike rowe said part of the problem was training. >> jobs depend on opportunity and training. over and over, that's what i hear, we need more opportunity and we need better training. >> once again, there is a candidate who believes in job training, who understands we need more vocational training. >> one of the, i believe, mistakes we've made 20, 30 years ago was to start de-emphasizes vocational education. right now we've got shortages of folks in fields that need technical training, but don't nece

. question you're asking is an important one. >> there's assumption the united states has military might to wipe out the nuclear programs. but there's -- there's an argument that israel's making, these things are hidden, underground. how do we know whether we would just be slowing them down and delaying the inevitable? >> well, i think we have to -- here again we have to wreck flies a certain fact. neither the united states nor israel can destroy the iranian capacity to build a nuclear weapon once and for all. we can destroy all of the facilities in the infrastructure that they have and it would be very costly and take them time to rebuild it, but they have the know-how and engineering capability to rebuild whatever would be destroyed. one of the reason it's important to create a context where the international community believes everything's been done that could be done and you've exhausted all of the diplomatic options and given the economic sanctions sufficient time, you need that so that the world says, you know what? the iranians had a chance to prevent the use of force agains

thompson, not named fred. now he is the republican nominee for the united states senate in wisconsin. tommy thompson right now is losing that race. the last five polls out of wisconsin all show tommy thompson losing, including one poll out today that shows him losing by 12 points. and that was before the "milwaukee journal sentinel" today posts this video of tommy thompson this summer telling a tea party group what his plans are for medicare and also for medicaid. listen to this. >> change medicare and medicaid like i did welfare, and who better than me, that's already finished one of the entitlement programs, to come up with programs to do away with medicaid and medicare? >> who better than me, to do away with medicare? we're going to have to wait until the next round of polling in wisconsin to see how the tape of tommy thompson saying he wants to get rid of medicare affects his numbers, in a state that's already inclined against him by 12 points. what do you think the next round's going to look like. mr. thompson's democratic opponent in this senate race is named tammy baldwin. one snapsh

president of the united states, barack obama, and the united states senate seat tim kaine. >> i love that you're continuing our football analogy for us there. in virginia, obviously, i'm a native virginian in the northern virginia area. a bit cultural different than the rest of the state. are the campaigning using different messages to connect with voters in different parts of the state? >> i haven't seen that. i think the president's message of investing in education and an infrastructure to create good jobs and a sustainable economy into the future resonates in four corners of commonwealth, whether in northern virginia or hampton road or southwestern virginia. i was pleased the president was in virginia beach today. hampton road is an area where our message will resonate. it's a real battleground area in hampton road. i think his message resonates. he's putting forward a message and a plan for the future. it's working in virginia. i suspect it will continue to work right up through the election. >> brian, you talk a little bit about the composition of virginia that makes it so purple? >

slashing taxes leads to economic growth here in the united states. >> yes, as i mentioned in the column, i brought a version of that chart to see paul ryan a year or so ago when hes and a member of congress and, like a lot of journalists i spoke to him regularly about economic pr policy and said, how do you square this chart with the idea tax cuts are the most important factor in creating economic growth? you don't need a chart, think about the last 20 years or so. h.w. bush first, then bill clinton raised taxes, all of these predictions of doom, instead we had the '90s boom and george w. bush cut taxes and there were predictions of prosperity and instead we had the slowest decade since world war ii and then the crisis. none of this is to say that tax cuts cause economic problems or tax increases lead to prosperity. i don't know anyone who seriously makes that argument. the question is, how important are tax cuts to economic growth? and i don't know how you look at recent history and say that relatively modest changes in the top marginal tax rate is the main force driving the ame

acknowledgement that the president believes the libyan attack was an act of terror. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking at the united nations on wednesday became the highest ranked official to publicly say there was a link between the attack and al qaeda. >> for some time al qaeda and other groups have launched attacks and kidnappings into neighboring countries and they are working with other violent extremists to undermine the democratic transitions under way in north africa as we tragically saw in benghazi. >> republicans are trying to seize on this slow walk by the administration. it seems to be a legitimate gripe. they are trying to make it stick. a group of powerful house republicans from the armed services, foreign affairs, intelligence, judiciary and appropriations committee have sent a letter saying clearly the threat from al qaeda and affiliate groups has increased an we're not learning. a good time line of the obama's administration evolving statements on libya from saying it wasn't planned to now acknowledging it was an act of terrorism. the most charitable explanati

do if he were to become president of the united states is repeal obama care and roll back all of those same provisions for americans. there are millions of americans who have benefited and now have health insurance who didn't before, thanks to obama care. the young adults who can stay on their parents insurance until they're 26, seniors who are saving an average of $600 on their prescription drugs thanks to obama care, closing the doughnut hole. and the first thing that mitt romney would do is the incredibly compassionate thing of repealing all of those reforms and leaving seniors and children and young adults in a situation where their health care is prohibitively expensive and if you have a pre-existing condition you can be dropped by insurance companies once again. >> it is a little bit of a whiplash factor to figure out, is it an advantage or disadvantage, talking about it or not talk about it. i do want to speak though and get your, pert background about the two big factors in your home state, senior vote and jewish vote. when it comes to medicare, the fight is not even clos

goal is achieved. le israel is in discussions with the united states over this issue, and i'm confident we can chart a path forward together. ladies and gentlemen, the clash between it need not be a clash between progress and tradition. the traditions of the jewish people go back thousands of years. they're the source of our collective values, the foundations of our national strength. at the same time the jewish people have always looked towards the future. throughout history we've been at the forefront of efforts to expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights. we championed these principles not in spite of our traditions but because of them. we hid the words of the jewish prophets isaiah, a moss sxwrar mya to treat all with dignity and compassion, to pursue justice and life, and to strive for peace. these are the timeless values of my people, and these are the greatest gift to mankind. let us commit ourselves today to defend these values so we can defend our freedoms and protect our common civilization. thank you.
